at American Hospital to a French military medical
facility for treatment of AIDS, his publicist said yester-

not been treated for the usually fatal AIDS - acquired
immune deficiency syndrome - during his eight-day stay
at the hospital, publicist Yanou Collart told reporters.
"Mr. Hudson remains hospitalized in a special isolation
unit at the American Hospital," Collart said. "He has not
been treated for AIDS while at the hospital. His condition
remains stable. Any decision as to his transference to
another hospital is being considered by his physicians."
Collart said "It was a decision we made" not to release
details of Hudson's illness and said she had "no answer"

military hospital. She refused to answer any other

Mich. wilderness bill
WASHINGTON - The House In-
terior Committee gave its support
to the Michigan wilderness bill
yesterday and backers hope they
have satisfied questions about
mineral rights in the Nordhouse
Dunes along Lake Michigan.
The bill would create 11 wilder-
ness areas totaling 92,000 acres. A
spokesman for lead sponsor Dale
Kildee, D-Mich., said a floor vote
is expected in early September.
The committee approved the bill
on a voice vote with only Rep.
Michael Strang, R-Colo., dissen-
"We don't think there's much
problem with it (the bill)," a
Kildee aide said, basing his views
on the tone of discussion during the
committee meeting and on reac-
tion to a Kildee amendment last
week to assure that the owner of
mineral rights under the dunes
would be given a reasonable chan-
ce to use them.
The owner, Gerald Derks, wants
to explore for oil and gas deposits.
